The Gold Standard 2011

 

March 6, 2011, I was here, at Petersen Auto Museum for The Gold Standard 2011. We arrived here little before 12:30pm, and the parking was already full so we had to find the street parking. We got in as VIP and we didn't have to wait in line at all. That was lucky.
They had a whole area for wines and beers, but we skipped that. We got here so hungry and we left here so full, my stomach was happy.

My favorites are from Mo-Chica, Maison Giraud, Providence, Mayura and Jones coffee.

Check my facebook page for more pics.















Loteria Grill
Beef tongue tacos, Mini crab tostaditas, corn esquites
I personally liked crab tostaditas and corn esquites a lot. They were tasty. They also had pink cactus drink that was really good.














Susan Feniger's STREET (yes, Susan Feniger was there)
Vietnamese crepes - coconut and mung bean crepe filled with pickled daikon, long beans, carrot, bean sprouts, peanuts.
I wish they had their famous kaya toast instead..














Mozza - I think it was mozzarella with roasted cherry tomatoes. Since I can't eat cheese, I only ate roasted tomatoes. It wasted like tomato juice.















Mo-Chica
chicken skewers, oysters
They were both delicious. Chicken was spicy (and yes, I like spicy)














Drago Centro
Foie gras panna cotta, duck confit & beet crouton




























AOC
Pork rillettes with pickled onions












Waterloo & City
Chicken liver foie gras mousse













The Slaw Dog
Spring fling holy roller


























Starry Kitchen
chicken curry, tofu balls

There were cheese too













Jinya
I think this is shoyu ramen. When I came back later for more ramen, it was tonkotsu ramen.












Jar
chinese pork croissant













Mayura
Butter chicken, Aloo palak, Garlic naan, Appam, and mango drink
I like food from this place and I really liked mango drink. I had 3 cups.












La Casita Mexicana
I tried their flan and Agua Fresca de Pina con nopales and both good












 

Jones Coffee RoastersYour choice of latter or macchiato. I had both. Maybe this place was my favorite of all, otherwise I'm not gonna have three cups.. or I just love coffee drinks..

Banana pudding, french fries, turkey hot dog, burger. Their regular french fries were salty but tasty, their sweet potato fries were really good. The hot dog bun was dry and wasn't so good.














Park's BBQ
rice and beef. I liked it, beef was tasty.














The Manila machine
Pork belly and pineapple adobo














El Huarache Azteca














The foundry
Grilled cheese sandwich. I really wanted to try one, but I can't eat cheese. Oh well, too bad.

Meals by Genet. Ethiopian food. I never had Ethiopian food before, but it was good.

Roasted pork with sundried tomatoes















Maison Giraud
Ham and cheese croissant, Almond & vanilla Blanc-Manger, blood orange gelee
croissant was too buttery for me, but I really liked orange gelee.















Father's office
stout braised ribs with orange glaze
I wish they had their burgers. I tried ribs, it was so soft, melting your mouth, but it was too fatty for me, and I just didn't like it.














Little Dom's ice cream
Eva bolognese
Chichen Itza red snapper ceviche













Providence
Scallop Tartare, Compressed pineapple and curry petit four.Pineapple and curry petit four was one of my favorite. That little tiny cubes had so much flavor, really refreshed my mouth.
